Ghost Lady Fern
Our highly ornamental offerings fashion distinctive fronds sprouting from a deciduous clump that relishes shady damp recesses. Old leaves can be left standing throughout the winter and cut back in the spring, just after the new ones burst forth.
This hauntingly beautiful hybrid inherits stellar attributes from each parent, A. niponicum var. pictum and A. filix-femina, thanks to the breeding efforts of Virginia’s Nancy Swell. Strutting a straight-up formal stance, delicate-looking silver-laced new fronds continue to unfurl throughout the season alongside mature leaves that present soft pewter hues, celadon greens and burgundy accents. Easily grown 'Ghost' illuminates woodland shadows with subtle lacy shimmers and a reliable sturdiness.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
